Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the stars who found love, suffered heartbreak or experienced some other major event in their love lives in the summer of 2020, starting with this shocking news… During an interview with Angela Yee that appeared on his YouTube channel on June 30, August Alsina claimed that he and Jada Pinkett Smith had an affair after her son, Jaden Smith, introduced them in 2015 — and that her husband, Will Smith, was fully aware of the romance and even gave them "his blessing" to see each other. On the July 10 episode of her Facebook Watch series "Red Table Talk," the 48-year-old actress admitted that she did, in fact, have a romantic "entanglement" with the singer, who's now 27, about four years ago while briefly "separated amicably" from her hubby. (They also clarified that although Will was aware of the relationship, he never gave his wife "permission" to date anyone — because only she has that power.) Ultimately, Jada reconciled with the A-list actor and reached a "new place of unconditional love" in their marriage. They haven't spoken to August since… Keke Palmer, meanwhile, was dragged into the Smith family drama after an old photo of her and August sitting in a car together resurfaced on Twitter. When a fan asked her about the pic on July 10, the actress replied, "August was never my man lol." The singer quickly caught wind of Keke's tweet and fired back, alleging that they dated — and that he was the one who called things off between them after her pals "begged" him not to "further disturb [her] mental instability." She then hinted on Instagram (without mentioning August or his allegations about their past directly) that there was more to the story: "I wanna be mean, but I can't. I want to post screenshots, but I won't," she captioned a selfie, adding that she "wouldn't feel good kicking someone when they are down." Now keep reading for more celeb love life updates…
